The Best of the Best

"Winning means you're willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else" - Vince Lombardi.
  • MarineMax Vacation power catamaran in the British Virgin Islands

When MarineMax created its charter vacation division, the objective was to expand the MarineMax concept of “providing a world-class boating experience with a team that is passionate about the boating lifestyle and sharing it with others” to include offering boating destination vacation experiences for year round boating enjoyment.

That meant create a yacht charter company second to none with a level of service and product intentionally designed to not only raise the level of expectations for the experienced charterer, but to educate and “wow” new charter customers.

A team of experienced industry professionals with an exceptionally strong commitment to world-class service was assembled. Then, the innovative Aquila brand of power catamarans was developed through a collaboration with world-class marine experts and the charter team. MarineMax Vacations launched Aquila power cats in their fleet, introducing a new breed of power boats to the British Virgin Islands. Unlike anything previously available, these luxury pure-bred power catamarans quickly raised the bar in charter boating experience, as well as winning awards in the retail arena.

Four years after delivering the first charter vacation, MarineMax Vacations, the youngest charter company in the BVI and one of 13 companies nominated, was named the 2015 Best BVI Yacht Charter Company in the Virgin Island Property & Yacht Reader’s Choice Awards - the “Go-to Guide” of the most talented people, best places, and excellent services in the area.

More so than by winning this great award, success comes in the form of guests returning to the base after a week of beautiful scenery and lively adventures who are eager to express their satisfied craving for an exceptional boating vacation experience unlike any other. “Truly a magical vacation! The team at MarineMax runs a first class operation. The MarineMax 484 is the perfect vessel for touring the BVI's. You would not believe how many people that we talked to on traditional sail cats were envious of the capabilities of our boat. I also want to mention along with all of the amenities, this was one of the easiest boats I have ever captained. You can run this boat 360° with ease and the sight lines are great. Special thanks to the planning team for the pre-trip info (every stop was incredible) and the local team in the BVI's! Can't wait to do it all over again next year!”- Ryan H.

Raul Bermudez, Vice President of MarineMax Vacations commented "We are very excited to be awarded this designation after just four years of delivering our first charter. Having a commitment to deliver an exceptional charter experience to every guest not only with our award-winning innovative yachts, but also with our personal service to every guest has been our driving force since inception.” said. “We are not the oldest or the largest charter company in the BVI, so it is a tremendous honor to be recognized as the Best BVI Charter Yacht Company this year among the respected companies we were up against.”

As the charter division continues its endeavors, it’s very gratifying to see familiar MarineMax families, some returning for their 4th MarineMax charter vacation, on the docks and to welcome new guests ready to experience a boating vacation on a new level.
